A Grand Rapids novelist is crisscrossing the state in support of her new novel about the complicated relationship between two sisters who were raised by a hoarder.

Kristina Riggle's "Keepsake" hit bookshelves late last month.

Her book tour is to stop in Petoskey on Saturday and Okemos on Tuesday.

"Keepsake" focuses on sisters Trish and Mary, whose mother was a hoarder.

Mary's house is spotless, while Trish's isn't.

When Trish's son gets hurt and Child Protective Services pays a visit, she's forced to consider that she might be living out her mother's life as a compulsive hoarder.

Trish and her estranged sister then reluctantly join forces to clean out the hoarded home.

Riggle is a former newspaper reporter who turned to creative writing. She's written short stories and novels.
